Raymond Frisher reviewed: Alien spoon carving

"Woodcarving course was very enjoyable, enabling first time carvers to work at their own pace. Has inspired me to purchase a set of wood carving knives to experiment further."

Ana reviewed: Dala horse carving

"I enjoyed the Dala horse course hosted by Alan. He explained very well the different kinds of carving techniques, the tools to use and the ways of the strokes. He and his partner were very kind at all time. Highly recommended."

"We have just attended Alan's carving for kids course, which was brilliant. He had the children captivated, I have never seen them so focused! Well worth doing and so nice to engage the kids in a craft that they can learn and enjoy throughout their lives. A wonderful antidote to screen time! Alan is very knowledgeable and was a patient and inspiring teacher. We look forward to learning more!"

"A really enjoyable day transforming a log into a spoon! Alan is skilled, enthusiastic and patient. He is happy to pass on his knowledge of woodcraft and all the related tools should you wish to take this further. Equally enjoyable was the gorgeous vegan food made by his partner (including scones, cake and bread straight from the oven)! Thank you both :-)"
